The Finance Minister for the first time will deliver the Union budget and it will be delivered paperless as the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was seen carrying a tablet which is ‘Digital Bahi Khata’ instead of a traditional briefcase.
A tablet inside a red coloured cover with a golden coloured National Emblem embossed on it was seen in Sitharaman’s hands. She was accompanied by Mos Finance, Anurag Thakur and other officials from her ministry. While commenting on why she is using a tablet this year, the minister said that Modi-government is not a suitcase carrying government.
Every budget is considered as important but this Union Bidget is very significant as it comes during the times of COVID-19 pandemic. The Union budget will be presented at 11 AM today.
